Today I would like to announce the winner of the Wallflowers Quilt Design Contest. Please give a BIG CONGRATULATIONS to Cristina
The winning quilt is called "Small Town Girl" and it was inspired by Cristina's recent visit to her
"I miss small town life and wanted to create a beautiful quilt
that I could see hanging on a clothes line back home. I love flowers,
and wanted a flower block that had layers of petals. I chose an x for
the center because I love the way the color gradually crawls out the
center of a real flower and fades into the petals. I was pleased by the
shapes the negative space created, but I think that's one of my favorite
parts of quilting. Anyway, I appreciate the opportunity, and had so
much fun designing this."
Thanks to everyone who participated in the contest! Wallflowers will be available in September so be sure to mark your calendars!!
